Hello! I've been lurking here for a bit, but finally decided to join so I could ask for a little advice. I've been vegetarian for about a year and am currently transitioning to veganism. Overall, it's been going well.<br><br>
I recently got a blender and have been making a lot of green smoothies, having lots of fun mixing stuff. But I happen to be overweight and would like to come up with something I can put in smoothies with protein, but not a lot of fat. I've gone through my whole fridge and pantry and haven't come up with something. I'd rather not use tofu because I already usually put some soy milk in there. Does anyone have any suggestions?<br><br>
thanks for any help!

spinach.<br><br>
spinach has a fair amount of protein for a green and you can pack a lot into a smoothie. popeye was onto something with the spinach and big muscles.

Hemp protein powder or Vega. I put natural peanut butter in my smoothies but its kind of high in fat which probably isn't what you're looking for.<br>
